If you’re a God-fearing person, I’d suggest you put down anything breakable before reading further.

With high-ranking Democratic officials listening reverently in the Iowa state capitol, a liberal activist and union official on Wednesday led a prayer for increased funding for abortions, for greater access to abortions, for doctors who perform abortions, and for what she called “the blessing of choice.”
Midge Slater, an organizer for the Iowa Alliance for Retired Americans, part of the Iowa Federation of Labor and the AFL-CIO, spoke to about 80 people who came to the capitol to protest a proposal that the State Board of Medicine end a program that allows doctors to prescribe an abortion pill for a woman after a video chat, rather than an in-person consultation.
Two days later, on Friday, the Board voted to end the practice known as “tele-med” abortions.
In her invocation at the rally, which was attended by Jack Hatch and Tyler Olson, two Democratic candidates for governor of Iowa, Slater:
- prayed that elected officials “may always support a woman’s right to make her own medical decisions.”
- She prayed for “increased financial support for low-income women” to have abortions.
- She prayed that “women in developing nations” have greater access to abortion.
- She prayed to “give thanks and celebrate that abortion is still safe and legal.”
- And she prayed that families may know “the blessing of choice.”
Leftists always sound idiotic when they try to combine their political “beliefs” with religious truth. Think back to January, when Touré thanked God on-air that “abortion was there to save me“. And who could forget Nancy Pelosi, the allegedly staunch Catholic, referring to late-term abortion as “sacred ground”?
Of course, Ann Coulter was one of the first to highlight this disconnect in her 2006 book, Godless, when she (accurately, as it turned out) referred to abortion as Liberalism’s “Holiest Sacrament“.
But here we have someone, surrounded by Democrat leaders, invoking God’s name in a prayer to bless and help spread abortion, around the world??
This is either a blatant sacrilege, or one of the most profound misunderstandings of God’s teachings I’ve ever heard.
